One of the luxuries of being in practice so many years is that I have worked with a wide range of people and clinical issues. We all learn from each other. I value the unique strengths and needs of each person. I consult with other therapists, to help clients get more out of their current treatment. It is a joy to be able to help in so many different ways.
Feeling stuck? Sometimes it helps to look closely with a consultant at when and how what feels like an impasse started. Reviewing the client's history of attachment, relationship history, including substance use and abuse, impact of medical conditions, family of origin cultural issues, etc. often provide information about how the impasse was co-created and the path for helping you feel less stuck. This often involves examining transference, countertransference and other external influences on treatment.
One of the richest ways to deepen your clinical work and increase your self-confidence as a therapist is to be part of an ongoing supportive consultation group. Members share their experiences, benefit from feeling more connected to colleagues while honing their clinical skills. If you have questions about my ongoing consultation group please feel free to call (925) 962-0060.
